2020 NURSING SEMINAR – DARWIN
Thur 11th & Fri 12th June 2020
Cancelled due to COVID-19 situation / Will be rescheduled for 2021
The ANZBA Board has decided to cancel all Australian & New Zealand EMSB courses, events, workshops and face-to-face meetings from March to mid-August.
The ANZBA Conference in Perth (previously scheduled for 13-16 October) has been postponed until October 2021.
We felt it necessary to take this step given the unfolding situation in relation to Coronavirus (COVID-19). Our priority is the health and safety of our Burns staff.
We are complying with advice and instruction from our governments and local hospital protocols restricting flights and meetings.
We face challenging times ahead, but we are doing everything we can to ensure that we keep the welfare of our many stakeholders at the forefront of what we do. We will keep you updated as we find out more.
Keep safe and thank you for your patience and understanding.
